Spotify launches application for Nokia


November 24, 2009 – Swedish streaming software Spotify announced on Monday the launch of a music application for the Symbian platform, used by the world’s biggest mobile phone maker Nokia and other smartphones.

Only customers who subscribe to Symbian’s paying premium service will be able to download the software application onto their smartphones, the company said in a statement.

“The launch of Spotify’s Symbian app opens up our mobile music service to potentially millions more music fans across Europe,” said director of portable solutions for Symbian Gustav Soederstroem.

Founded in 2008, the company is one of the world’s largest streaming websites.

Streaming websites are gaining in popularity, but are increasingly trying to supplement their advertising revenues by offering paying versions.

Spotify, which is currently only available in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Britain, France and Spain because of copyright issues, launched an application for Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android in September.

It allows music fans to search for new tunes and then stream them directly on their handsets.

  • This is the 4th piece of good news I am receiving


    I am very gratified that a Kenyan corporate magnate considers
    even the spiritual angle and values in business.


    This is clear from his argument on how to detach, use all available
    positive resources and view the problem objectively rather than personalizing


    And how to handle borderline cases who think tolerance
    equals weakness; what the Arab should do to the camel..


    It is a piece of advice that I will keep….and use when the need


    I think the lack of spirituality and values has led to the
    sort of scorched earth struggles that we see, as though life, peace or happiness
    can be purchased with any amount of money or by obliterating your corporate opponents.


    Besides, as the young ones observe all this, how will they
    grow? What kind of people will they be?
